  • Autosomal Recessive Spinocerebellar Ataxia Type 17

    Disease definition Spinocerebellar ataxia type 17 (SCA17) is a rare subtype of type I autosomal dominant cerebellar ataxia (ADCA type I; see this term). It is characterized by a variable clinical picture which can include dementia, psychiatric disorders, parkinsonism, dystonia, chorea, spasticity, and epilepsy. Summary[…][orpha.net]

  • Urinary Incontinence

    The lumbosacral nerve roots should be assessed by checking deep tendon reflexes, lower extremity strength, sharp/dull sensation and the bulbocavernosus and clitoral sacral[aafp.org] Abnormal findings such as deep tendon hyperreflexia or absence of the bulbocavernosus reflex should alert the physician to possible underlying neurologic lesions contributing[aafp.org]
